Meet the Move U Crew

The Move U Crew provides support and services to help our campus community to move more and reduce sedentary behaviors. They do this through leading guided wellbeing walks, coordinating physical activity challenges and implementing movement breaks in classrooms and meetings.


NATALIE - Move U Crew

Hi! My name is Natalie and this is my first year as a Student Leader with Move U Crew, however I have already worked at the UBCO gym for a year previously. I am in my third academic year, how ever due to changing my degree multiple times I am still completing first year Biochemistry. I am most passionate about making physical activity fun and doable for everyone regardless of where you are in your fitness journey, as well as educating others on the health benefits of reducing sedentary behaviour. I love going for walks, hikes and bike rides to explore the beautiful Okanagan valley especially if it involves Geocaching!!



PREE - Move U Crew

Hi! My name is Pree. I am a third year Manufacturing Engineering student and this is my second year working with the Move U Crew as a Move U Crew member. I’m super passionate to help students on campus incorporate some amount of physical movement through fun games and activities and help them maintain an active lifestyle. I love to go on hikes and the Okanagan has been gifting me with some of the best hiking spots throughout the year. Apart from that, I enjoy playing football(soccer) a lot and being up to date with the transfer market too.

How to Get Active

How to integrate activity into your day

Choose activities you enjoy

Try different activities until you find the one that is right for you.

Schedule your exercise

Treat it like an appointment and write it down in your calendar.

Make it social

Making plans with a friend can keep you more accountable.

Use Active Transportation

Walk, bike or run instead of using transit or a car.

Join a team

Check out Intramurals or events for a great way to make friends.

Set realistic goals

Consider how active you are and set yourself up for success.

Barriers to fitness and solutions

No time

Identify a few 30 minute time slots in your calendar and book them off for physical activity. Or, try implementing exercise snacks into your day. Learn more.

No one to go with

Develop new friendships with physically active people. Join a club!

So tired after school/work

Schedule physical activity when you feel most energetic.

Too much on the To-Do list

Plan ahead – make an appointment on the calendar and keep the appointment with yourself.
